Positioned on the riverfront, Stanley is a two-storey Cantonese restaurant inspired by the moody waterfront of Hong Kong’s picturesque Stanley Bay. Stanley’s menu combines the best local produce with traditional Cantonese flavours. Treat yourself to an ambient and unforgettable experience.

Stanley’s philosophy is centred around great food, friends, fishermen and farmers.

Tikaram’s fresh perspective and mindset of venturing outside the box adds to the unique experience of Stanley.
